Juan Williams, a former NPR political analyst was fired for his comments on Fox News that he gets “nervous” when he sees people in “Muslim garb” boarding a plane. The President and CEO of NPR (National Public Radio) stated that Williams was not fired for that particular incident, but for offering his controversial opinions on several occasions, which she deemed a breach of journalistic ethics for an NPR analyst. Schiller intensified the existing controversy over Williams’ dismissal when she added that Williams should have kept his Muslim comments between himself and “his psychiatrist or his publicist—take your pick.”

Ron Schiller, the man in the video who is the Vice-President of one NPR’s department voiced his true beliefs about Christians, Tea Party, Republicans, America, Jews and Islam. The video is part of an undercover operation where Ron Schiller was recorded heavily criticizing Conservative groups such as the Tea Party movement, describing them as “fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamentally Christian—I wouldn’t even call it Christian…basically, they believe in white, middle America, gun-toting—it’s pretty scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people”. He also stated that NPR “would be better off in the long run without federal funding”, defended the firing of Juan Williams, and criticized “anti-intellectual” elements within the Republican Party.
